site is working better, looks like they were up all night fixing stuff, but still not done. You have to go in under the M at the top, and then across to the M3 sedan or M3 coupe. Only the build your own section is working now, and as previous posters have said, no GGT, no lease (no model found for supplied model code) and no destination.

Thanks for the post. I guess they are still fixing the site. It should work better by monday, I guess. I hope the M-DCT option shows up.

Interesting notes from the standard specs on the coupe.

M-style alloy wheels (Style 219M),18 x 8.5 front
-Definately different than the style 260 already released. Can we get a f'n picture??
Power front/rear windows with "one-touch" up/down operation
-This seems to keep coming up. Another copy and paste error from the sedan specs?
Adjustable front armrest
-This is on both sedan and coupe. Sounds like the split armrest.

Judging by the configurator pics the wheels are the same!?

The M3 is not avaible at the moment on bmwusa.

A little hint: check out www.bmw.de to configurate the m3 and get some perspectives (the buttons are on the same positions, they are just in german, dont mind that )

The site has a couple of issues still but, the bigger issue to me is that, as a marketer, I have to say that this would appear to be one of the most lack-luster launches of a flag ship product (or is that the 7 series?) I have ever seen...into the biggest market in the world no less. Makes the car no less desireable to me but, it is interesting.

Perhaps the car mags and websites will start to get primed over the next few weeks. However what does it matter when your product is so anticipated that it is facing production delays already and you have barely begun to advertise the product (in the U.S.)? Rant finished....

What do you mean by lack-luster? I think BMW has done a pretty good marketing job otherwise you wouldnt have people lining up everywhere for one. Unless you have been in a bunker for the past few months, the M3 has been covered extensively in just about every car mag and TV show such as Top Gear, 5th Gear, etc.

Also the delays are related to the 19in wheels, BMW marketed those wheels so well that just about everyone wants them.

And we STILL don't know anything about M-DCT, non-EDC, the difference in the two 18" wheel styles, what the seats really look like, performance comparison between 18" and 19", etc. These are non-trivial failures of marketing in my book. And the build-your-own is OK, but what's so hard about posting REAL, non-photoshopped pictures of the interior and exterior options? Heck, MSN offers 360 views of the REAL interiors and exteriors of cars and trucks they don't even make! And did they HAVE to make every M3 at Ascari MR? Or every M3 is the brochure AW? Why is BMW so deathly afraid of color?
